Epson gt 12000 scsi

We don't have enough information. The SCSI card has to match the bus of the computer ie: ISA, PCI, ect. is a good place to start. Then you have the problem of a cable with ends that match the card and the scanner. The Epson GT has a parallel interface which might be a simpler solution.

Hi I need the service manual with schematic of this old scanner (HP scanjet 4p) This device doesn't work : SCSI controller and O.S. (either 98SE and Windows XP pro) configure properly the...

The old model scanner came with an old ISA SCSI plug-in card. Even if you had the card, it will not fit into ANY of the card slots on today's motherboards. That card could inly be inserted into a a motherboad from the pre-pentium days - like a motherboard with a 80286 processor. If you ae using a diffrent SCSI controller card I doubt if it will work with this old scaner. FYI, service manuals do not contain schematic diagams and would not cotain the info you need to get that scanner to work with a different scci controller. Sorry, but the 4p is just too old.

SCSI to USB conversion for Film Scanner

SCSI to USB converters are available, but I doubt they will be of much help for you, you'd still need a special driver for your scanner.
Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate support "XP Mode", essentially a Windows XP environment running in a virtual machine. I'd try to get the SCSI interface card and scanner to run inside the VM as a workaround.

The pinout is specific for the original controller ISA board. So, even inserting the voltages (+5v and +12v) in the right pins, it would not be possible to connect to a Paralel port, the pinout is completely different.
I've found the pins to insert power, but this information turned out to be useless, since i cant connect the data pins to any valid port.
Here is what i found:

01 -
02 -
03 -
04 - +12V
05 -
06 - +12V
07 -
08 - +12V
09 -
10 - +12V
11 -
12 - GND
13 - +5V
14 -
15 - +5V
16 -
17 - +5V
18 -
19 -
20 -
21 - GND
22 -
23 - GND
24 -
25 - GND

Conclusion: Even IF you get the original controller board, it use a ISA standard, so your motherboard will not have where to put it, since all motherboards since the 2000's have only PCI slots.
